In honor of 2009 (and figuring out how to embed NHL videos), I bring you a countdown of the nine best Flyers games of the year gone by, 2008.
Number nine is from February 25th of last year. The Flyers were in complete freefall, falling from the the top of the conference to out of playoff position in no time flat. The Flyers had lost a mind-numbing ten straight, including an especially pathetic effort vs. Florida in a 2-1 loss in Philadelphia in their last game.
With Stevens' firing seemingly imminent and the trade deadline on the horizon, panic had set in. And it didn't help when Buffalo got off to a quick 3-0 lead in the first.
...well, watch for yourself
Danny Briere's shootout winner against his former squad ended the Flyers skid and set the team back on the course for the playoffs. Without this win, none of the 2008 playoff magic would have been possible.
